Annual Snow Flurry Scurry wraps up


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The weather may not have lived up to the name of the race, but Saturday’s annual fundraiser for Lost River Cave still drew over 400 runners from South Central Kentucky and surrounding states.

According to David Haynes, the organizer of the Snow Flurry Scurry 5K, the race has drawn more interest than anticipated every year and he has seen the number of runners increase annually. The sponsors and the large number of runners benefit Lost River Cave and the surrounding wetlands since the total amount of the entry fees from the runners is paid to the cave.

And as for the weather, while the conditions were wet and chilly, Haynes says he’s seen the Snow Flurry Scurry run when there was more than a flurry, with more than eight inches of snow that fell before the race a few years back which caused trees to fall on the course and last year’s snowy event with one inch of snow.

Jordan Green finished first in the men’s division with a time of 17 minutes and three seconds. Belle Thomas finished first in the women’s category with a time of 19 minutes and five seconds.
